Childhood sweethearts Jack Pressman, 88 and his wife Hilda, 85, celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary with a party at Jewish Care¹s Rubens House, a residential care home in Finchley, North London, where they have lived for the past year and a half. The couple grew up in the East End of London, living in the same road. Four generations of the family came to the party including former Jewish Care chief executive, Melvyn Carlowe, who is married to their eldest daughter Jackie. “We¹ve been very fortunate with our marriage. It has been wonderful,” said Mr Pressman. “They are very good to us at the home.” Jewish Care is the biggest health and social care charity for the UK¹s Jewish community and runs 70 centres and specialist services in London and the south east of England.
